How much of an idiot would you have to be to buy these? You can get the exact same thing at the supermarket for a tenth of the price.
They're 1.5-2 servings each. I can never finish my half and let the gf munch on the rest.

Omg I'm really enjoying nature right now, it's so nice and beautiful. I'm really getting in touch with my wild side.Hey that's my favorite song, turn it up!

So what you're telling me is you didn't tell them what all this would entail and they didn't prepare. Sounds like an overall unenjoyable trip to me and I would think your goal is just to show off and make your friends look stupid. Sounds like my friend who said he wanted to go hiking once, just chose some random place he heard about, then we got there and he realized he chose poorly as he was used to nice largely flat city trails and not a fucking mountain lol.
im not trying to argue im just curious how this works since there are inflatable sleeping pads. granted they're only a few inches thick as opposed to 12-15." so what creates the r value in the self-inflating pads with no foam in them?

I live in southwest Virginia and heard the strangest noise that I haven't been able to place to an animal. One night I heard a group of some animals moving through my neighborhood going "whoop whoop whoop" non stop. I've listened to recordings of foxes, Bobcats, owls, and just about everything else but nothing seems to make this sound. It literally sounded like they were going "whoop whoop"

Why are you not storing their seeds for gene splicing?
Eugenics is much less messy when you do it in a trageted rather than random way. Just take the genes you want and splice them until you get der ubertree.

>tfw ordered more pepper varieties

I don't even have enough room to grow them all.
Anything goes in container culture, no limits as to location. Mojave desert here (8b, BSk) and the only plant I cannot get to beyond a year from seed is avocado. My rec. would be herbs. Simple, saves $$$ and who doesn't like fresh herbs?
WTFis a muskmelon?
It's a species of melon which includes a ton of varieties like canteloupe and honeydew melon.
It's kind of like how cabbage, broccoli, kale, Brussels sprouts, etc. are actually all the same species.

It’s not climbing rope, it’s the dyneema ridgeline
Net bags are actually pretty fuggin great, very expandable and packable, plus it’s just to put food in in plastic bags so will constantly be shrinking. Errything else goes in pockets or my belt

Is camping gear is the biggest waste of money imaginable. Any time I've met a legit old woodsman their gear is usually more from a hardware store than a camping store totalling no more than $200. Its not the lightest either, but it looks used to hell. The reality is most people will never be outdoors in rough enough conditions to justify high end equipment. Have you found your setup getting lower end the more experienced you get? I know mine has, and I feel dumb for wasting so much money.

What I meant was that maybe your old woodsmen are hunting and car camping? Not necessarily a need for water filters and special socks with that kind of stuff.

Also advertising makes people buy a lot of shit. Especially in the outdoor industry. Problem is that nicer stuff comes out every few years.
I love the thing. One of the best purchases I've ever made. I got the older model and I can just keep stacking stuff in between the gap between the bladder lid and the cover over it. Also mine has molle so I can strap even more shit to it if I needed to.
Pretty much this.

When car camping and canoeing for example I have seen people will all kinds of old heavy beat up shit.

Anywhere in the backcountry I have been that is at least a day from a trailhead everyone carries modern light stuff.

Spend money where it matters. If you are carrying all of your shit on your back for days at a time, buy light. If you don't need to buy light, don't.
Id rather grow some larger testicles than to spend an extra $20-$200 to save a oz here and there on items.
Light weight dosnt have to mean heavy or expensive. The setups I'm talking about are minimal and fit in a day bag. For instance one old hippie looking guy I met had a piece of tyvek for a ground covering a cheap sleeping pad he cut to exactly the size of his chest, a cheap sleeping bag that he took all the filling out of and replaced it with down, a trash bag to cover his lower half and a small tarp to cover his upper half.

What do you carry in your first aid kit?

Those are more akin to first aid.
But if the wound is deep enough it will create a pocket of infection that would lead to septic shock quicly. (pic related)

Its still 1000x better than sewing a wound with no expertise on the subject, but by no means its a substitue for stitches in most cases.

Just a first aid treatment till a professional can actually give you proper stitches that vary depending on the lenght, depth and shape of the wound in question.
Water?... then use alcohol swab then cover
You shouldnt use alcohol on an open wound...

Water + Soap > Disinfectant > Gauze > Bandage
Useful thread, thanks.

I'm working to construct my kits actually.

First aid and a misc adventure kit.
Both are fairly basic right now
What’s a good disinfectant for wounds then? I don’t want to be carrying around bottles. Also, what are alcohol pads used for then? Just sterilizing equipment?

How well can I legally fortify/booby trap my private property?

I've been wondering this for the longest time. I own a 40 acre stretch of woods with some big ass fields here and there, a creek running through it and some pretty good dirt bike trails for me and my kids. So you can figure I get a good bit of trespassers coming through here.

But what happens if some fag from the water treatment planet nearby, or a game warden, or someone else gets themselves killed? Am I considered a murderer?

What's my limit here?
14 replies omitted. Click here to view.
You can only kill trespassers in self defense. If your shoot a trespasser who isn't threatening your life, you are looking at a murder charge. Stand your ground and castle doctrine are meant for home invaders. If they die in your boobytrap while you're not even close, you're looking at a life sentence for premeditated murder.
Are they leaving trash? Are they poaching? Are they making fire? Are they in any other way damaging your property? If no, stop being a faggot. The US really needs a "right to roam" amendment.

That is a terrible idea because that would lead to squatters coming and going as they please and a host of other problems. People just need to stay the fuck out of other people's property. There are plenty of public hiking trails and parks people can go to so why do they need to wander onto some random ass property?

Also OP I would do the 12 gauge trap that this anon said >>1344301. It basically makes a loud bang and usually scares people off or at least alerts you. It is not harmful just makes a loud noise so you can't get sued or anything.
>That is a terrible idea because that would lead to squatters coming and going as they please and a host of other problems
If that happens, you have a police to take care of that situation, but in a healthy society, that problem is minor to start with
>healthy society
Oh, yeah, I see.
OP, how about some landmines, then? You can probably get them at the sporting goods section in wallymart.
This. I have random peeps walking all over my land but that’s because Im fenceless. My fault in the end because hey, why the fuck not if there’s no fence to stop ya.

It's all boomers, xoomers and younger rednecks though. Especially the rednecks are the exact same retards that would park a truck in a mud pit and blast country if they hadn't financed a boat.
If I see one more FUCKING person post this god damn retarded ads phrase, boomer, I will fucking lose it. Stop with the summertime bullshit catchphrase nobody is fucking using except idiots, it's fucking annoying, you little shits. This is the same exact thing from a couple of years ago when fucking cuck was just being flung left and right and used so incorrectly, it generated a fury in me that was rivaled by no others. I swear to god, you people want to make me shove rusty nails through my god damn fingernails lengthwise, than hear one more person fucking say boomer
Fuck sakes, I hate this place...

where do these people get the money for all of these vehicles? It always seems like the have a large lifted truck to tow their boat and whatever thing they can think of. Not judging just legitimately curious as to how they can afford all of this shit. Do they just take loans and are in constant debt?

I'm totally new to fishing, looking for some general advice on what kit to get. I'm interested in shore fishing and river/loch fishing, I'm based in Scotland.

So far I have a 240cm rod with reel (casting weight 40-60g), plenty of 10lb line, three trout spinners, three sea trout spinners, a tobeye, a wedge, two sets of mackerel feathers (three feathers on each), two 40g lead weights and a few swivels.

I've struggled to get much distance when casting the trout spinners, I've had some success fishing from piers for mackerel using the feathers and two 40g weights.

I already own a multitool and a gutting knife.

What would you advice I get/use for trout (river and lochs)? Should I buy a whipper rod, if so length? I should add that telescopic suits me perfectly, I like packing stuff away in my car and travel a lot/walk in the hills lots.
>casting weight 40-60g

Bit much, no?

There's tons of trout fisheries/lochs all over the country, and salmon fishing up north.
Where about are you?
Gear varies a lot depending on where you are fishing and what kind of fish you want to catch.

240cm rod is overkill, a 160cm/180cm rod with a 1000 / 4000 reel size is more than enough for any kind of fishing bar fishing at the sea from shore in beaches and piers and when fishing for big catches while on a boat in the ocean.
Based in Alness and Edinburgh
Thanks, I thought this might be the case...something whippier and lighter.

>if you used any active insualtion regualy you would know that it wears out pretty fast

I'm curious about this. I used to primarily use fleece as a midlayer, and a decent fleece would easily last me 5 years of regular (seasonal) use, but I've been using an atom lt and a micro puff pretty heavily in the last two years without any real signs of them wearing out yet. The atom lt was on sale like 60% off and I like it so much I bought two.
